Messenger - Vol. 1, No. 2, Page 4 Winter 1992 Faculty honored nationally for instructional technology Four Delaware faculty were among 100 "success stories" nationally identified this fall at an EDUCOM conference because their use of instructional technology has improved teaching and learning in higher education. Selected from more than 300 nominees nationwide were Gerald R. Culley, associate professor of foreign languages and literatures; Louise Little, associate professor of nutrition: Larry W. Peterson, associate professor of music; and Fred T. Hofstetter, director of the Instructional Technology Center. EDUCOM is a non-profit consortium of 600 higher education institutions and 105 corporate affiliates that encourages the introduction, use, access to and management of technology in teaching, learning scholarship and research. Culley was recognized for his Latin Skills software for IBM microcomputers. His three-lesson program builds skill in Latin translation and word formation and adds an individual tutorial to the elementary Latin course. Little videotaped a nutrition and dietetics class in the University's instructional television studio, making it possible to offer a self-paced section of the course. The videotaped section has received positive student reviews and allows Little to accommodate more students. Peterson was recognized for a lesson from his Interacting with Music Series, which uses an interactive videodisc to teach aspects of music appreciation. The lesson, which runs on the IBM Info Window System, moves some listening and lecture time outside the classroom. Hofstetter's GUIDO Music Learning System, designed for IBM microcomputers, assists music students in the development of their aural perception, or ear-training, skills. Students use GUIDO outside the classroom, working at their own pace and concentrating on areas of greatest need. EDUCOM plans to publish the 100 success stories in a book and an on-line data base.
